Christmas seems to come round so quickly these days, and here we are, another one is due in half an hour. Time seems to be travelling much faster in recent years.
I hope Santa is well organised and his reindeer are all fuelled up with carrots. Little Peter has left some out for them when they visit him, and there is a mince pie and a glass of sherry for Santa. I'm not sure how Santa is going to gain access to their little flat because there is no chimney, but I am sure he has a contingency plan. Santa must consume an enormous number of mince pies, numbering several million, during the course of his evening's work . . . and I hope he does not lose his driving licence after all those alcoholic drinks, and is able to fly in a straight line . . . perhaps he should have said, "No! No! No!", and abstained. He must have a continuous toilet problem in addition to having time to deliver all those presents in such a short time, getting stuck up chimneys and kissing Mummies under the mistletoe.
Well, it remains for me to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you have a very enjoyable Christmas holiday. I did not have time to grow a beard so I used shaving cream, just in case you didn't notice.
I am enjoying my Christmas tree this year. Thank you Peter for helping me put it up. Perhaps in a couple of years Rosa may be able to help out as well.
